Hooray for Bill Gates!

OK, even I never thought I’d utter those words aloud, but check out this interview with Tom Brokaw.

Gates displays a sense of humor when asked if he has an iPod and he provides a reasoned mature answer to the question about concerns over children being harmed by computers.

This stands in stark contrast to the fear and loathing displayed by popular edubloggers who regale us with the virtues of their technology-free cleansing retreats and the micromanagement of their children.

Hooray for Bill Gates! Who would have thunk it?

PS: This news report about Gates’ last day at Microsoft reminiscences is quite charming and well worth a read.
